Hi rosyb123, I believe the quote you are looking for is: "It is assuredly as dangerous for people in good society to invite and make much of novelists as it would be for a miller to breed rats in his mill." This quote can be found on page 19 in "Sur L'eau And Other Stories" by Guy De Maupassant. Search strategy: Using Google Book Search, I searched the words (Maupassant house invite mills rats) http://books.google.com/books?lr=&num=50&q=Maupassant+house+invite+mills+rats&as_brr=0 I then verified the quote and page by using the 'Search inside this book' facility offered by Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1417943394/ref=sib_dp_srch_pop/002-9153614-4292006?v=search-inside&keywords=rat+miller I hope this is helpful. If you have any questions regarding my answer, or believe this is not the quote you remember, please don?t hesitate to ask for further assistance before rating. Best regards, Rainbow
